That was awkward

Here’s how to become a glass half-full kind of person :)

Too long, didn’t read…

You’re never simply surviving the BS in your life. You’re always thriving (even if it might not seem like it). Surviving implies you’re merely getting through something and then staying the same. No! For every piece of BS you experience, you are getting something in return and for that reason you are always thriving. 

  • Listen to this week’s New Mindset, Who Dis podcast episode. I titled it “Hands on your hips” and it’s guaranteed to make you more optimistic.

A simple reason to be optimistic.

Here’s how to become a glass half-full kind of person :)

Know that you are never merely surviving in life. You are always thriving.

That’s the mindset.

It’s not thriving in the sense that you’re always winning. Nah. Thriving simply means you’re making the most of whatever happens to you.

You’re never just surviving the BS in your life. You’re never just getting past it. You’re thriving through it.

Lemme explain.

You have every right to be thoroughly optimistic about life because the sh**ty things that happen to you are all building you and because of that, you’re not just surviving, you’re thriving.

Even if it doesn’t seem like it, for every piece of BS that life throws your way, you are getting something in return.

Surviving implies you’re just getting through something and then staying the same.

No! Never.

For every piece of life BS you experience, you are getting something in return and for that reason you are always thriving. 

Everything you go through builds you. Every single thing.

Every uncomfortable thing. Every single bullsh*t moment, every loss, every frustration, every moment where you're clueless but keep going, every time you do something for the first time and fail.

Every single moment builds you and gives you something in return.

Right? Surviving implies you get through something just so you can continue living as you were.

But that’s never the case in life. Any time you go through something tough, you are getting something in return.

Think back to something tough that happened to you in the past year.

If that thing were to happen to you again in the future, how would you react? It could be getting fired from your job, or a relationship falling apart, or a family issue. You name it.

Because you already experienced it or something similar, you know what it’s like. If you’re honest with yourself, you know you can handle it again. You know it’s armed you with perspective that says you’re stronger now.

You’re stronger now.

  • For every time you embarrassed yourself in the past, you now feel less embarrassed because you know it’s not the end of the world.

  • For every bad date you’ve been on, you now overthink less because it doesn’t hold so much weight or significance anymore. It’s a reflection of them, not you.

  • For every loss or rejection in your past, it stings less now because you know how to move on quickly and you know you’ll try again so there’s nothing to overthink.

You’re thriving because now you don’t need to overthink those things.

That's a BIG DEAL because the things we overthink in life typically are things we haven’t experienced yet. But you’ve been through BS so you don’t need to overthink or worry about it like you used to.

You know you can handle them moving forward.

That’s the mindset, my friend.

You’re thriving. Never merely surviving.

When you appreciate what you have and what you’ve been through... you realize that there’s nothing you can’t thrive through.

You come to realize that you can’t just be grateful for the good things that happen in life. You can’t just be grateful for the positive moments, the wins, and the great times with friends.

No! You have to be grateful or at least appreciative of everything in between.

When you realize that, you recognize that you’re never merely surviving. You’re thriving.

Let’s go.
